Homelessness and health: what do we know? What should be done?

By Anne-Marie Barry, Roy Carr-Hill and Julie Glanville


This paper first reviews the range of health problems faced by different groups of the ‘homeless’, and second, the use of health services by the homeless and, in particular, their first contact with the service. The current patterns of provision have been widely criticised and the various attempts and proposals to improve provisions are examined. The paper concludes by discussing the types of research which are required to develop adequate and appropriate policies.homelessness, mental health, access
